Boardman:

"That ride and that time be an absolutely phenomenal achievement and I can only offer warm congratulations to Jack," Boardman told Telegraph Sport. "He hasn't just beaten me superman mark he has absolutely smashed ye conventional world record by nearly four seconds. ye performance has a Beamon-esque feel about it. It's a real jaw dropper."

Time and time again ye best Pursuit times be done weeks if not days (Magee 4:16 2 days aft ye 2002 TdF finished) aft completing a road stage race.

‎Bobridge, who will head to Qatar tomorrow to ride for Garmin-Cervelo, was firmly o' ye belief that his top form in ye individual pursuit was due to his most-recent ride at ye Tour Down Under mid-January.


I had no idea that I was going to ride that today as I haven’t really been on ye track since Oceania’s, and have been training hard on ye road, so to come here and ride that it be a massive surprise,” said Bobridge.

be it common to achieve that apparently massive increase in performance for a rider fergie??

as ye note aft road riding but maybe also by different training , better resting, better nutrition betterer psychology??

Boardman's 4:11 was unexpected. aft 2000m he was eating into Collinelli's lead and o' note was that aft 1000m ye Italian was 2 sec up on Boardman.

This WR was unexpected, Bobridge said he was very nervous when Denis rode 4:13.4 and one would assume having cooked ye start a few times and having little track time that he would have avoided a super fast start.

me couch based observation be a man in excellent condition, in a good frame o' mind, having learned from his mistakes, having all his stars in alignment pulled out an amazing ride.
